I used Wrox's Beginning XML (read 13 chapters) and XML@Whiz and the IBM practice test. I studied for about 2 weeks. This doesn't cover all the material, but some of the answers can be gotten by the process of elimination. XML Functionality questions were of medium difficulty. Time was a BIG factor. I needed much more time than the practice tests and nearly ran out of time on the actual test. The exhibits are actually quite brief and not as difficult as the practice tests.

Hi, Eugene: Congratulation. I am preparing the XML certification.Could you please answer me a question? How do you think about XML@Whiz? DO you think is it very helpful to pass the certification? Thanks a lot for your input. Nan

XML@Whiz I liked it. It gave many examples in the mock tests and the explanations were very good. Someone in one of these posts said therer were no questions on the real test from here, but there were similar ones. Where is helped me was in the xml rendering and processing looking at the code. It never covered regular expressions, there was one of these on the IBM test. - so what I like best were the explanations to the test answers

Don't you think that someone who has never posted here before decides to post here twice to brag about how well he did with this product. Does anyone really think that the XML certification can be passed with two weeks of preparation? If that were the case then why would anyone even bother taking such an easy exam? I'm moving this to Blatant Advertising where it belongs.
